Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to install a bathtub or shower?

The time required to install a bathtub or shower can vary based on several factors, including the type of installation, the complexity of the project, and any additional features or customizations involved. Generally, it takes 1-2 days to install a standard tub or shower stall. However, more complicated models or situations may require additional time from your plumber. Contact the professionals at Radiant Plumbing and Air for a free quote on your bathtub installation.

Installing or replacing a bathtub can be a complex DIY project, depending on your level of plumbing and carpentry skills. The task involves connecting water supply lines, adjusting drain pipes, and ensuring proper support within the bathroom floor framing. Electrical considerations may arise if the bathtub has built-in features. It is crucial to adhere to local building codes for safety and compliance. Larger or heavier bathtubs may require additional manpower. If you are confident in your skills and understand the local regulations, you may attempt the project yourself. However, if you are uncertain or uncomfortable with these tasks, call Radiant Plumbing and Air to finish the job quickly and reliably.

Regular maintenance is advised for nearly every item in your house, including your new shower or tub. We recommend regularly cleaning it using non-abrasive cleaners and avoiding harsh chemicals. To prevent clogs, cover your drains with drain strainers. Install leak detectors and promptly address any leaks that are found. Prevent mold and mildew by properly ventilating the area after each use and keeping the caulk sealed around the base of the tub. Inspect your fixtures and repair them as necessary. And if you’re unsure, subscribe to the Radiant Maintenance program and we’ll take care of maintaining your new tub for you!

The cost of replacing a bathtub can vary significantly, typically ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 or more. Several factors influence the cost, including the type of bathtub chosen, materials, labor expenses, and any additional features or modifications required. Basic alcove bathtub replacements tend to be on the lower end of the cost spectrum, while more complex projects, such as installing freestanding tubs or using custom materials, can increase the overall expense. Additional costs may include the removal and disposal of the old bathtub, plumbing adjustments, and any necessary tiling or surround installation. Call Radiant Plumbing and Air to get a free quote on replacing your bathtub or shower and turn it into the one of your dreams.

To unclog a bathtub drain, start by removing visible debris near the drain and pouring a pot of boiling water down it. Use a plunger to create suction and dislodge the clog, and follow with a mixture of baking soda and vinegar to break down debris. For persistent clogs, consider using a chemical drain cleaner cautiously or employ a plumbing snake to physically remove the obstruction. Always follow safety guidelines, and if these DIY methods prove ineffective or if you’re uncomfortable with the process, call Radiant and we’ll stop by to clear the clog fast.

If water conservation is your game, we can help you find the newest bathtubs, showers, and fixtures that will help reduce your carbon footprint. New bathtubs have a variety of features that make them better than the ones installed in your 1930s Spanish Colonial style home. Features such as better insulation for improved heat retention can be found in most new standard bathtubs. Additionally, if you’re looking to install a hot tub or jetted tub, you can find energy-efficient water heaters, LED lighting, adjustable jets, and smart technology to enhance your bathing experience. Radiant Plumbing and Air can help you upgrade your bathroom into a sanctuary haven of bliss.
